Joseph Bernstein (sometimes spelled I. N. Bernshtein or Iosif Naumovič Bernštejn; Hebrew: יוס(י)ף נאומוביץ ברנשטיין; Russian: Иосиф Наумович Бернштейн; born April 18, 1945) is an Israeli mathematician working at Tel Aviv University. He works in algebraic geometry, representation theory, and number theory.
Bernstein received his Ph.D. in 1972 under Israel Gelfand at Moscow State University, and moved to Harvard in 1983 due to growing anti-semitism in the Soviet Union. He was a visiting scholar at the Institute for Advanced Study in 1985-86 and again in 1997-98.
Awards and honors
Bernstein was elected to the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities in 2002 and was elected to the United States National Academy of Sciences in 2004. In 2004, Bernstein was awarded the Israel Prize for mathematics. In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.
